Re: Google Stadia

So they've messaged to say everyone who preordered in June will now have codes and they are now going through Julys and codes will be sent in date order from when you preordered. October 8th :P Amazing that all the people that have gone out and invested in this unproven tech have been shafted like ...

Downtown Abbey (Now TV)

52 episodes of unchecked snobbery.

I've never watched the show, but my wife did and gave me play by plays throughout. We went to the movie together and I actually really liked it.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I need to start really cutting through my backlog. I'm finally playing Red Dead Redemption of the PS3. And, to no surprise, I'm really enjoying it. It's incredibly addicting so far. I want to play it a lot longer than I do, so I might be moving the PS3 from streaming setup to the living room...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Has anyone played the new Age of Empires/AoE2 Definitive Editions? I don't really want to buy those games again, especially after I bought 2 and all it's DLCs for the HD Remaster thing. But, I'm also weak and nostalgic and would buy those games again.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Jojo Rabbit - Fine but less of a comedy than it might appear. I think Taika Waititi, with this is Hunt for the Wilderpeople, is in slowly morphing into Wes Anderson. The dramedy of all, at least. I still enjoyed the movie, but it's also a bit more conventional than his previous film. Also, at home, ...

Re: You've been left an arcade by your long lost uncle!

I forgot about that or I might have chosen it over Turtles. Cadillacs and Dinosaurs was another close call. That AvP one though is probably the best side scroller, and I include Streets Of Rage 2 in that. I had no idea this game existed. Love those comic book high kicks and freaky end boss fights. ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So, I never had a Sega so anything on the Mega Drive/Genesis collection on Steam is new to me. Which means last night was the first time I ever tried Columns and I got sucked into all night. How did I never play this anytime after? It scratches all the Dr. Mario itches I get (I should probably see a...

Might be fun to ask the guys at Tabletop Gaming magazine about it (@TabletopMag on Twitter).

Re: 395: Donkey Kong 64

Donkey Kong 64 was a game I was incredibly excited for, it seemed like it was going to be huge and all that talk about the extra space with the Expansion Pack added to the anticipation. Unfortunately, that game's size turned out to be the reason I don't look back fondly on this game. It's one of the...

Re: Retro gaming

Not the biggest haul in the world and I didn't find even half of what I was looking for (no one had a DJ Hero deck!) but had a lot of fun. Haven't played any of these games!

Re: Retro gaming

Happy hunting! On Timesplitters 2, campaign wasn't really the meat of that game, so if you played a lot of Arcade League and multiplayer, I'd say you got most of what you can out of it. I'd guess copies are fairly cheap though. I played all three games and their multiplayer quite a bit. But, two is...

There is an Arcade Tycoon game on Steam (mixed reviews). This was quite cool:

Re: You've been left an arcade by your long lost uncle!

This is some Stardew-level escapism. Can we turn Arcade Tycoon into a thing? I didn't spend too much time in the arcades growing up and, when I did, I was more into pinball machines. But, I'd be happy to have DDR Street Fighter IV Crazy Taxi X-Men Arcade The Lost World: Jurassic Park Ms. Pac-Man Sim...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

The wife and I went through Street Fighter 1,2,Alpha,3,4 & MvC3 over the weekend. Considering I've been playing Street Fighter since I was a small child, I didn't appreciated the sound thumping I received through the course of all the games. My mom also used to beat me in SF2 as Chun-Li. I guess I'm...

I tried to grab this on Vita, turns out it's the only platform from the last 1000 years its not been released for, doh! They've got the 'non DX' version, but there are some fairly big differences I believe between the two games.
The steam game goes for pennies when it's on sale.
